    Anthem X 26" replacement?

    So, my 09 anthemX is getting long in the tooth, so its time for my well-loved bike to be replaced. I love maestro, so Id love to buy another anthem.

    problem is, I have no interest in 650b or 29 wheels (which, for the purposes of this discussion, is not negotiable)

    I prefer new bikes, so is there any 26" bike on the market from any other brand with comparable suspension system for reasonable prices?
    The mountains are calling and I must go

    You are looking for any brand that uses a dual short link design. The ones I know of are:
    Pivot
    Santa Cruz
    Giant
    Turner
    Marin
    Niner (doesn't help you)
    GT (technically it is)
    Intense

    Of all of these, I think Intense may be the only one making a 26" XC bike.
    I guide and rent bikes in Northern Utah
